Alors que son père perd progressivement la vue en raison d’un glaucome, l’artiste Moe Suzuki commence à documenter leur quotidien à tous les deux. Les images ainsi créées se mêlent aux photographies de famille et aux photographies que son père a lui-même prises. À travers cette documentation riche, Moe Suzuki tente de montrer ce que les clairvoyants peuvent voir mais que son père ne voit pas, et d’imaginer ce que son père voit, mais que les autres ne voient pas.

Moe Suzuki est née à Tokyo et a étudié la photographie au London College Communications, University of the Arts London.

De retour à Tokyo après le grand tremblement de terre de 2011, Moe Suzuki apprend la reliure en autodidacte. Elle commence alors une carrière d’artiste visuelle, privilégiant la photographie qu’elle mêle à des images d’archives et des illustrations. Son travail porte principalement sur des sujets tels que la vie en communauté, les personnes handicapées ou la spiritualité.

Ce livre est le lauréat de la 7e édition du LUMA Rencontres Dummy Book Award Arles 2021. Sa publication a été rendue possible par le soutien des fondateurs du prix : Les Rencontres d’Arles & LUMA Foundation.

As her father gradually loses his sight due to glaucoma, artist Moe Suzuki begins to document the daily life they share together. The resulting images are mixed with photographs from the family archive, as well as those taken by her father. Through these images, Moe Suzuki attempts to show what sighted people can see but her father cannot, and to imagine what her father sees but others cannot.

Moe Suzuki was born in Tokyo and studied photography at London College Communications, University of the Arts London.

Upon returning to Tokyo after the Great Eastern Earthquake in 2011, Moe Suzuki taught herself book binding skills and started a career as a visual artist, working primarily with photography, mixed with archi- val images and illustrations in order to tell narratives in book form. Her work focuses on topics such as community life, people with di- sabilities or spirituality.

This book was the winner of the 7th edition of the LUMA Rencontres Dummy Book Award Arles in 2021. Its publication was made possible by the founders of the award, Les Rencontres d’Arles & the LUMA Foundation.
